christie. with the election near but the disaster now two political rivals joined hands and got to work. they saw a shoreline battered beyond recognition, almost beyond belief. mile after mile of destruction. home after home, life after life. on the ground at a local shelter no political complications, just simple need and promises from each man to meet it. >> governor christie, throughout this process, has been responsive. he's been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm. and i think the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul in to making sure the people of new jersey bounce back even stronger than before. i want to thank him for his extraordinary leadership. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and for the people of our state. >> ask you to back up, please. >> in hoboken, new jersey, that meant the national guard, nowhere to be seen until last night was out in force today, rescuing people stranded and getting hungry. >> could have survived one night without fo

. governor chris christie says the damage to the state's beaches is, quote, overwhelming. today, governor christie will tour the devastation with president obama. the republican governor who has campaigned steadily for mitt romney raised eyebrows by praising the president's response to this crisis. we'll take a look at the politics in play. but first, more importantly, we'll focus on the devastation, the damage along the jersey shore. michael holmes is in toms river. that's on the jersey shore. he joins us by phone. very hard to get a live shot out of there right now. michael, describe the jersey shore. what are you seeing? >> reporter: damage in barrier island. it's quite a sight, i can tell you. there's a mile-long queue of emergency vehicles, tractor trailers, four-wheel drive, heavy earth-moving equipment, buses loaded with rescue workers, fire truck, rescue truck, national guard is all here, all lined up on this side of the bridge waiting for the green light to head across and on to those barrier islands you've seen extraordinary pictures of. they're going to go over there, set up a
of destruction crisscross. >> it was an amazing day yesterday between the president and governor christie in new jersey. >> oh, yes. >> no one quite gets or understands how this will play out. does this help romney? does it help the president? what are the polls showing? it has been a topsy-turvy few days, no one really knows. we'll know tuesday night. won't we? >> yes. >>> also ahead, heroes of the hurricanes, some of the neighbors helping neighbors with a new life on the line. >>> then, we'll lighten things up a little and show you some of the best celebrity halloween costumes "ifs and butts" that will make more sense. shortly. that will come up in "the skinny". >> people have a little idea what's going on. bring "the skinny" back after a few days of all storm news. that's good. of course we have got to stick with the sandy story and palpable signs of recovery in sandy's wake. power is being restored in what has been a very dark lower manhattan. and traffic lights in new york's financial district came back on yesterday afternoon. power to buildings is coming back a bit slower. one by one. stil
will inspect the disaster scene along with governor chris christie, a top romney supporter. dan lothian is live in washington. good morning, dan. what is the president's message right now to storm victims? >> reporter: well, it really was two-fold. first of all, he wanted to pledge that the federal government would cut through red tape, cut through all the bureaucracy. he said there would be no excuses for inaction. and that federal agencies should really explore all options even leaning on the military if necessary to get the resources to where they need to get as quickly as possible. but secondly, what the president was also trying to reinforce yesterday was kind of uplifting the spirits of those hit by the storm. some of whom have lost everything saying that america is with you, america will help you get back on your feet. and he praised those who have already jumped in and taken action. >> during the darkness of the storm, i think we also saw what's brightest in america. i think all of us have honestly been shocked by the force of mother nature as we watch it on television. at the same time
what's happening there. this is the podium but moments later chris christie will be briefing his state. chris christie holding a press conference here that we'll bring you live here on cnn. a lot of people weren't expecting a storm this late in the season, and now the rush is on to get supplies. some storms already running low. people looking for bottled water, you are finding empty shelves there. look at that boat. trying to get them out and get them safe. despite mandatory evacuations in areas of new jersey, delaware, some people are bound to stay in their homes as they always do. and we know the answer to that, that's a bad idea, right? with me now, general russell honory, you commanded the military in new orleans as a general there, should people prepare differently for this storm than they do, because there are different elements with this, is there a different preparation for this storm? >> we have gone into this storm for the last few years since katrina to encourage people to have a three day's supply of food and water on hand for an event just like this. >> because usually whe
chris christie had this to say about sandy's effect on the election. >> it doesn't matter a lick it to me at the moment. i have much bigger fish to fry than that. >> joining me now is democratic strategy chris kofinis and erin mcpike. you heard governor christie. i think other words that a lot of people feel right now. we know the importance of the election. after all, this is the presidency we're discussing here, but at this point when you see new video like what came out of new jersey in the last few minutes, we have one week to deal with the election, but right now people are hurting. >> that's right. there was a rumor yesterday that mitt romney might go to new jersey to survey some of the damage. chris christie was asked about that. he essentially brushed that off and wasn't interested. he was interested in working with the president in relief efforts and didn't want to see presidential politics in new jersey. i thought that comment was more important that mitt romney can't show up on the east coast right now. he has to stay away. >> chris, where does the situation of the cam
coordinating with us. it's been wonderful. >> so could chris christie's kind words, it's been wonderful for the other side do anything to tip this balance in a tight race? a senior spokesman for hillary clinton, and john avalon, a columnist at "newsweek" at election express. thanks to all of you. let me start with you, john. some of the latest polls included in the poll of polls. we take the major ones and do an average. you look petition pew research center. 48-48, and they continue along that vain. with numbers like that, john, could a small thing like chris christie coming out with a very serious and significant entorsment of the president's handling of the storm tip the race? >> listen, erin. a race like this, this tight, every thing matters. this is a game of inches right now. this is a war of attrition. and we're seeing this in ohio here. both campaigns focusing heavily on ground game. so every little thing matters. and what if highly respected governor, chris christie in a time of crisis has kind words to say, being honest, saying it's been good to working with the president, tha
and unthinkable. that's what the new jersey governor chris christie is calling the damage from the super storm sandy that slammed his state. and just look along the jersey shore. or what was. tonight, officials are blaming the storm for more than three dozen deaths across the country. and more than 8 million customers, not people, 8 million customers have no power. most of them in new york and new jersey. look at this map here. the damage from the monster storm extends as far as west as michigan. the blue areas are the flooding. the red is wind damage and the white, that's snow and lots of it. parts of west virginia have already gotten more than 2 feet of snow. the blizzard warnings are in effect in more than a dozen counties until tomorrow afternoon. new jersey, of course, took the direct hit from sandy just south of atlantic city. officials say the casinos are okay but the storm washed away part of the board walk there. and in other towns along the jersey shore. farther north just outside new york city emergency workers are using boats to rescue hundreds upon hundreds of people from homes th
by sandy. he was accompanied by new jersey governor chris christie. here they are in a photo just released by the white house within the past hour on marine one. the president said he will help. >> we are here for you and we will not forget, we will follow up to make sure that you get all the help that you need until you've rebuilt. >> the iconic boardwalk and seaside heights, new jersey, is just one of the places the president saw today. it's a landmark made famous by bruce springsteen, mtv and "the sopranos." this is before and after, to give you a sense of what's happened. it's not even all there. you can see the rides including the roller coaster have been washed away sitting in the ocean. michael holmes is just across the bay in toms river, new jersey. you were in seaside heights, you toured it, what did you see? >> reporter: we went right up and down a number of towns there, ocean beach, normandy, and we spent a couple of hours there with the local police chief and i can tell you, it was absolutely extraordinary, the amount of damage that was done by hurricane sandy, erin. you know,
're dealing with a chris christie, a michael bloomberg, and an andy cuomo. these are three guys who are not shy. and if they think the federal government was not helping them, was not being aggressive, they thought the president wasn't on top of this or wasn't doing everything that they thought the federal government could do, don't you think they'd run, not walk to a tv camera and let people know? so you're in a unique situation here with a hard-hit area, so three very politically savvy, media savvy governors in the most important media market in the world. you don't want to mess this up. so i think this is a case where it's good politics not to play politics and just throw yourself into disaster relief because you're dealing with a high population area that, frankly, you mess this up, the whole world is going to know about it. >> yeah, howard, what's impressive to me is he's going to new jersey today. he went to jersey. we saw the pictures. not to one of those states that we got a little tired covering basically, the so-called swing states. he went to the states in need today. >>
for cbs news. >> when new jersey governor chris christie heard some residents were stranded on the barrier island, he blasted the mayor of atlantic city. christie said the mayor told people they could ride out the storm. that didn't sit well with the governor. >> once i signed that declaration of emergency, that power is the power of the governorship. you have a mayor, a rogue mayor, telling his citizens it's okay not to leave. i don't know what you call that. i don't call it effective governance. >> the governor says rescuers will not be able to reach residents until some time this morning. >>> sandy has grounded travelers all over the world. according to the flight tracking service flightaware, almost 14,000 flights have been canceled, around 8,000 flights monday and more than 5,500 today. it could take some travelers days to get to their final destination. >>> sandy may be dying down but she's packing a wallop. right now she's about ten miles outside of philadelphia. sustained winds are at 75 miles an hour. "cbs this morning saturday" meteorologist lonnie quinn is tracking the storm. >>
. this is the amusement park at seaside heights before and after the storm. governor chris christie toured his battered state by air, described what happened as unthinkable. >> the devastation that's happened to new jersey is beyond what's happened to anyone else, at least from the reports i've seen so far. that should come as no shock since the storm made landfall here. >> reporter: it hit just south of atlantic city, the gambling and tourism city, leaving residents who defied the mandatory evacuation order stranded. dozens had to be stranded from shelters of last resort where the power failed. in northern new jersey, more search and rescue, after a tidal surge pushed a river over its banks. the water rose five feet in a matter of minutes. >> it's like a lake in our basement. and it filled up to our stairs. >> there was no phone lines, the electricity was out, all our phones were dead, basically, we couldn't call nobody. >> reporter: across the state, 2.4 million customers, 60% of the population have no power. the worst of it was probably right along the coast, in towns like point pleasant beach, wher
